Benefits



Knowing if you are at risk for certain cardiovascular diseases or metabolic disorders can empower you to make the necessary changes to your diet, lifestyle and environment.

The comprehensive test results can help you to work with your doctor to develop a personalised health management plan for more effective prevention options.

The tests are predictive in nature and can reveal the risk of a disease long before any symptoms appear. By intervening early, and identifying regular health monitoring based on specific genetic risks, doctors have a better chance to prevent a disease from ever occurring.
